  1. If someone had predicted 20 years ago Thursdays would become the disaster area it is nowadays, I’d have laughed at them!!!

    How wrong of my past self!

    These ratings are just disastrous.

    There’s no other word for it.

    Even the football games are doing poorly (which leads me to wonder how much bonus money Bob Greenblatt will get for overpaying to steal some of those from CBS…)

    HTGAWM, Pitch, Notorious, Rosewood, The Good Place and Superstore should be pulled immediately (but won’t of course), while Chicago Med and Blacklist only look “good” in comparison to the disaster around them.

    Wow!!! Just Wow!!! 🙁
